Dear Highwaymen **** The Captain's Corner ****
Whilst our system of advance booking into time zones appears to be very popular, I do miss the banter we used to have in the clubhouse at our laptop booking-in desk before we went out to play. As a result, there is a small chance we will lose contact with some of our Highwaymen friends if we always play in the same time zones. To overcome this, try varying your time zone bookings a bit. Have a little longer in bed one week and set the alarm clock a little earlier on another.
Bill McIntosh receives too many requests and queries at home each week about our weekly competitions. To help him with this, please read the note below we have put together, it is an attempt to help make his life a little less exasperating. I know he would very much appreciate your suport with this.
Now that we have stopped using the “desk” and cannot use the HWM Noticeboard, almost all our communications have to be via the Weekly Parish Notices, competition notes and website.
It is therefore important that you read carefully what is sent out and act upon it. If you don’t you may miss out on something important, for your golf, possibly your safety and certainly your sanity as we start to roll out the World Handicap System. A small price to pay, surely, for the new bespoke service you now receive based on your preferred time zone bookings?
A good example is cancelling a Thursday tee time after bookings close at 3pm on Monday. To do so, you must contact the Pro-shop directly as they are responsible for managing the start sheet once bookings have closed; please do not make cancellations yourself online as this creates confusion.
Finally, those who do not complete their rounds or cards: out of courtesy to the competition results compilers, who waste time speculating where missing cards are, please hand in your cards into the pro-shop on your return to the clubhouse irrespective of your game. "
